Yamasaki Academy is Open
We are open!

Sort of….

Our county has entered into Phase 2 Re-opening Saturday, June 13th which means we can open back up for business! With limitations. Our plan is to start slow and easy with limited types of small classes. We will slowly build on this as we see good results and as Virginia continues to move through each Phase of Re-opening. To see more information on that plan of attack, please visit our COVID-19 Plan page here:


Check out our schedule page to see what types of classes are being offered as well. This will be changing weekly so be sure to check back often!


Let’s get back to training!
